Trevor Phipps of Unearth Converses with Madness To Creation on Poker Tips, Remembering Vinnie Paul, and America’s Screwed Up Environmental Policies!

Editor's Note:  Let me tell you, this was one of the most chill interviews I have ever done.  Trevor Phipps of Unearth was like a long lost friend that I reconnected with.  Unearth was getting ready to dominate the Vans Warped Tour and we talked about everything from games on smartphones, to Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell, to even Donald Trump's skewed environmental policies.  Unearth's single "Incinerate" recently hit number one on "The Devil's Dozen" via Liquid Metal.  Fans can find Unearth at the following locations: Madness To Creation:  (As Trevor is finishing up with a game on his smartphone), What kind of video games do you like to play? Trevor:  Not much of a gamer, but on the road, I like to play games.  I'll show you, (pulls out his phone), it's Clash Royale, it's like Cla...

(Album Review) “Makes Good Choices” by The 1984 Draft

Out of Dayton, Ohio is a band that mixes garage rock, indie rock with some succinct songwriting and wordplay with an Americana feel called The 1984 Draft.  Under the tutelage and guidance of Pat Himes(Ryan Adams), the band is set to release their latest record entitled "Makes Good Choices". The 1984 Draft have quite the resume for being a band out of Dayton.  The band has shared the stage with the likes of Andrew W.K., Every Time I Die, Murder By Death, and Off With Their Heads.  This is where their resume gets more unique in comparison to the majority of the bands that I've covered.  In 2014, The 1984 Draft released their EP entitled "Bo Jackson Up The Middle" and the band was featured on the NFL Network's documentary of the actual 1984 NFL Draft, which Irving Fryar, WR out of Nebraska...

“Two Parts Viper” by ’68, how can this be two dudes in the band?

This past June, Atlanta, Georgia's own '68 released "Two Parts Viper" via Cooking Vinyl/Good Fight Management.  Josh Scogin(formerly of Norma Jean and The Chariot) and drummer Michael McLellan have released quite arguably one of the most raw records I have heard in awhile! The mission for '68 is to get back to the roots of rock and roll, while combining elements of Jack White meets elements of Every Time I Die and The Chariot, to create a combination of chaos and melody, brutality and simplicity, and just pure dirty, gritty rock and roll. "Two Parts Viper" starts off with "Eventually We All Win".  It sounds triumphant and gritty as Scogin takes the distorted guitar, turns it up to 11, while McLellan provides some of the most raw drumming I have heard in awhile.  From a lyrical standpoint...

“Float Around” by Coldfront, taking my generation back to the days of skateboards and the advent of MP3 Players!

Out of Oakville, Ontario, Canada comes a pop-punk band that brings me back to the days of Lit, Sum 41, and Green Day where I would rush home from school turn on MTV's Total Request Live featuring Carson Daly and those on the side of rock were rooting for a rock music video to be featured in TRL.  We would leap with joy when the likes of P.O.D., Limp Bizkit, and Green Day would be featured.  Then Sum 41 and Lit would take over and even the Deftones! Coldfront is bringing back the feelings of Carson Daly, TRL, and when MTV featured music videos with their latest offering entitled "Float Around", which was released via Equal Vision Records on October 6th. Coldfront, who describes themselves as "another f****** pop band", is composed of Tom Stewart on vocals, Jared Cipak on guitars, Chris Cas...

“Anti-Melody” by American Standards, transcending a genre!

American Standards, tear down this wall, or all of these walls that are genre specific.  On April 28th, the Phoenix, Arizona hardcore band American Standards released "Anti-Melody" via the DIY format! DIY personifies what punk and hardcore music should be about, and that is setting your own agendas and doing things unconventionally without relying on others.  American Standards are carving out their own niche in the hardcore scene with "Anti-Melody". American Standards has influences of At The Drive In, which should make old-school post-hardcore fans elated.  You hear this influence of experimentation with tempo changes, guitar tones, and story-telling guttaral screams such as the track "Bartenders Without Wings".  I can definitely appreciate the chugging bass line, along with the change...
